Company auditions for the 2019 mainstage season. Auditioners will be considered for the entire season, including TCT's 2019 touring company, and Exceptional Inclusion Core Company. Being available for only specific shows does not exclude you from auditioning, or full consideration. There will be an option to notify us of your availability at the audition.


Please write to inquire about audition appointments to ag.tctorg@gmail.com, and place 2019 AUDITIONS in the header. Please indicate in the email the best way to reach you, and which day & time you prefer. We will make every effort to accommodate you, but as these appointments tend to fill very quickly, we may need to move you to the next closest time slot. Appointment times are as follows (for both days):
5pm - 6:30pm
6:30pm - 8pm
8pm - 9:30pm

  • Age 18 and up.
  • You will be assigned an hour and a half appointment. Please be prepared to stay for the entire time allotted. Since space is limited, we will not be able to see anyone without an appointment.
  • Please be at TCT a minimum of 15 minutes before your appointment.
  • Due to the nature of the audition process, we may not be able to see you if you are late in arriving.
  • Come dressed to move.
  • No monologue or prepared music required.
  • Please bring a resume and headshot or very good photo.
  • All positions are compensated. TCT is not considering AEA contracts at this time. Due to the nature of our mission, we are not accepting applications from artists outside of the Greater Cleveland area. If you are unsure if this applies to you, please feel free to inquire!

TCT is ADA accessible.

We look forward to seeing you at the audtions!
